Weekend at Laurel

January 13, 2001|By Bob Pickering


In C C's Honor, a $75,000 claim by the E and G Stables last November, will face a half-dozen other added-money winners in the 10th running of the Northern Wolf Stakes. The Scott Lake-trained gelding is the defending champion of this $50,000 event.

After the son of Allen's Prospects was haltered from his fourth victory of the year, he went on to win the Lite the Fuse Stakes in his next start.

His chief opposition and likely favorite for the 6 1/2 -furlong dash is Grade III stakes winner Disco Rico.

The highlight of his career came last June when he won Monmouth Park's Jersey Shore Breeders Cup Stakes.

The Valora Testerman-trained colt has been on the sidelines since a placing in Saratoga's Amsterdam Stakes. The field also includes Trounce, My Problem, Dr. Max, Erlton and Alea Iacta Est.

Last year's top trainers and jockeys will be honored.

Trainer Dale Capuano and jockey Mark Johnston, tops in the state last year, are scheduled to be honored after the fourth race. Capuano finished the year with 132 victories; Johnston was aboard 292 winning mounts.

Lake, with 102 wins and jockey Ramon Dominguez with 255 victories, had the best winning percentages.


Unbeaten Your Out, which dominated Maryland-breds over the local strip last year, will face five Kentucky-breds in the fourth running of the Belair Stakes. It is her first start in open stakes competition.

After beating maidens in Delaware Park by 10 lengths, Your Out went on to win three stakes events by equally impressive margins.
